I started a sweater! Two days before law school begins... am I crazy to think I'll have any time to knit in the next four months? It's not a very complicated sweater- the Minimalist Cardigan from the new Interweave.
I've got about 3" done so far, and I'm already wishing I knew how to knit Continental (is that the style where you hold the working yarn in your left hand?), because all this k1 p1 is a little tedious with the working yarn in my right hand.
Even if I only get to work on this a few hours (minutes?) a week, I think it will be a mindless escape from hours and hours of legal reading. And perfect for fall. Just look at the wooly, nubbly goodness!
I'm using Cascade 220 in a lovely heathered shade called Garnet that reminds me of a good red wine. Maybe mulled, to fit with the fall theme.
While I was buying the yarn, a gorgeous, sunny yellow sock yarn caught my eye and I just couldn't resist. Even though I won't be making socks anytime soon (I don't think), it was just sitting there on the shelf, calling to me while my Cascade was being wound into cakes. So I got it. It's Shubui, 100% superwash merino in a colorway called Finch. I'm thinking it will be the perfect antidote to the dreary, gray, rainy, wintry weather I'm facing for the next several months.
